Ms Cinnamon, Owner For Cinnamon joining the Goddard family was the culmination of a life long journey in the Early Childhood Education field. Cinnamon has always been passionate about working with children and being part of her community. This led her to open a home-based childcare center in Lakenhealth, England so she could nurture her son’s growth while serving and helping meet the childcare needs of the military community.

Though her degree is in business, she stayed close to her roots. Cinnamon's career path has led her to teacher turned Director to Operations Director and ultimately the proud Owner of The Goddard School in Woodstock.

Cinnamon's goal and promise to you, is to make your family’s Goddard experience unparalleled by providing a nurturing and educational environment for your children to become confident life-long learners.
